You could submit your repository to apt-get.org at
http://www.apt-get.org/submit.php, and use their site to search your
repository. That's assuming that the outside world can access it though.
Alternatively you could contact firstname.lastname@example.org or
email@example.com and ask for the code which uses Xapian to search.
That's the code on the Debian package search, and the Ubuntu package
search. See http://packages.ubuntu.com/about/ for more info on that.
